Winter Whites

I may or may not have re-watched Basic Instinct.

I am going to blame Sharon Stone entirely for this look!

As far as I’m concerned there’s just nothing better than white in winter.

Just keep me away from ice picks!

I went to meet Lucy at Ottolenghi’s “NOPI” in Soho.

It’s the sit down alternative to his wonderful deli shops.

A crisp white and gold cave in the heart of Soho.

Lucy is one of the superstars at Jimmy Choo, and a blogger too!

We’ll find any excuse for a weekday catch up.

Especially if it involves breakfast foods.

NOPI’s eggs are a particular favourite of mine, especially paired with their deeply smokey smoked salmon, and sourdough.

I also like the coffee a latte.

I’m a sucker for cool loos in restaurants and this one is beyond brilliant!

A maze of mirrors and hidden doors.

A great place to reflect.

After breakfast we hopped over to Notting Hill, so she could head to another meeting and I could pick up Señor Custard.

To take him for a bit of an Autumnal stomp, in the sunshine.

You wouldn’t beleaf how much Custard loves a good pile of leaves!

(Almost as much as I love playing with him in them!)

He always beats me in the end!

I like to let him win-ter make him happy!

Have you seen these?

  • Ohh he’s adorable!

    I love your coat Rosie, and the pics are fab! Thumbs up for the flare lighting xx

  • You look amazing as always Rosie. Custard looks so sweet playing with the leaves! x


  • Rosie, you look AMAZING. So radiant and happy. You life is fabulous but you deserve that as you work so hard to be where you are. Keep it up πŸ™‚ xXx

  • Sydney

    Wow… I think only you could give Sharon Stone a run for her money!
    Loved the Mail article by the way, gorgeous photos and write up. Obviously mail comments are notorious, but I was saddened to see the vitriol. Their chief complaints seem to be spelling mistakes after you explain you are dyslexic (and I-with an english degree- don’t notice anyway) and that your life is just too wonderful. If people moaned that my life was too wonderful, I’d take it as a compliment!
    Keep on being lovely Rose x

  • Oh, how I love Senor Custard! Those eggs look incredible too!

  • This look is a total dream! Perfect Basic Instinct inspiration–haha I laughed about your ice pick comment. What a nice breakfast–too bad Michael Douglas couldn’t join you as well.

  • Louise Brettenny

    Just discovered your blog and kicked myself that i’ve allowed myself recently to go to the same haunts in London a lot of the time. You’ve inspired me to become a proper Londoner again and explore our beautiful city. First place I intend going is Ping where you mentioned in an old blog. Everyone loves a bit of ping pong! Keep up the good work x

  • STUNNING photos!! I’m dying to go to Nopi! X

  • The white Asos dress is gorgeous! I know what it’s like to have a dog that’s obsessed with leaves. YAY for Autumn! x kayleigh // mylittlejeans

  • Hi Rosie, such a cute outfit. Next time I come to London I have to try Nopi’s, because I LOVE good breakfeast too.

    Have a wonderful day!

    Best regards,
    Anne del Socorro //

  • Rosie…as usual you look amazing. I’ve been looking for a white/cream coat…this looks so much better on you than when I saw it on ASOS?! Is it true to size (I know it’s meant to be a loose fit) but wasn’t sure whether or not to drop down a size? xx

    • Claire Bosselut

      Was actually thinking the same. Could you give us details Rosie?

  • georgia.

    How cute!! The matching couple outfits <3

    I'm always so jealous of the piles of leaves you get in autumn. Here in Sydney, even when it is autumn we don't get that spectacular display of red leaves. I'll instead have to live vicariously through you.

  • Love the shots with the puppy

    XoXo One Stiletto At a Time

  • I love white in winter too, especially in these days that aren’t too cold. You look gorgeous and incredibly elegant! I’ve not been to Nopi before, but that interior is incredible. Dream kitchen colours – I think so!

    I’m a sucker for cool restaurant toilets too > and the ones in Momo’s and Aqua Shard, and Clos magiore… the list goes on!

    Beautiful pics of you and Custard. Definitely some for the frames there!

    Katie <3

  • Alia Hansen

    Oh he is so cute! This really makes me miss my dog <3 and BTW, Sharon Stone has nothing on you! πŸ˜‰

  • You look stunning Rosie! I’m such a huge fan of winter whites too. It’s also nice to see you coordinated with Custard!!!! Those eggs look divine.

    Hugs xoxo

  • Such gorgeous photos, I’m so jealous that it’s autumn over there! Love the all white look too πŸ™‚

    Tessa / Bramble & Thorn

  • super cute outfit and I love the pictures! Great photography πŸ™‚

  • Aw I love your outfit- white is a colour I normally steer totally clear of unless it’s the middle of summer (and there’s no mud/colourful food/small children around for a good hundred miles! =p). Maybe I should try being a little braver?


  • You look incredibly chic in this all white outfit Rosie!

  • Ann

    So I have been dying to ask this question for months now – who takes all these pictures of you in the street or in locations where you seem to be on your own? Hopefully it does not sound creepy – i’m just very intrigued πŸ˜‰

  • Love Winter whites! The Mulberry Bayswater (my most prized possession) that I got for my 18th birthday is Winter white, I just wish I had a little Custard of my own to match. Co-ordinating yourself and your pooch is spot on! I love it!
    Rosie x

  • White and gold… A current obsession. Rose you look fab in white – perfectly paired with autumn hues! Love it.

    Have a fab day ahead!

  • Such a perfect outfit Rosie, I cannot remember the last time I wore all white!

    Ekaete x

  • I totally agree Rosie, white is a winter winner!!!

  • Shade of Red Blog

    London (and you!) look unbe-leaf-ably good in Autumn!

  • Such a gorgeous outfit Rosie! I can’t wait to live somewhere where the leaves turn orange and fall of trees.

  • nothing like a side of sliced avocados with any and everything! Nori looks cool, & custard looks dapper as always. Love the cream coat!

  • one of my fave outfits of yours! you and custard look so sweet!

    Love your white coat and your YSL bag! Custard is such a cutie – his little front legs when he is standing on his hind legs just make me die!

  • You look so gorge Rosie. I was wondering, please could I ask you a few questions for my dissertation (it’s on blogging/magazines)? x

  • you look amazing – the doggy pictures are always my favourite πŸ™‚


  • Sorry but no one should put floor to ceiling mirrors in a loo especially on the loo door!! ….there are some things in life NO ONE wants to see! ;/

  • Niki Rust

    Loving the all white everything look! Now if only I had a dog to match my outfit this morning! haha!

    xo Niki,

  • I love wearing white in winter even though it’s been traditionally been considered a taboo! And Custard is too adorable!!

  • liliana

    Lovely shoes. Don’t take this the wrong way, just with a grain of salt but…
    I can’t help but say I enjoy your blog 100x more when your photos aren’t so blurry and grainy. Your phone mirror photography is much clearer then when I assume the “chap” takes photos

  • great pictures πŸ™‚ love the article in The Mail on Sunday Magazine too πŸ™‚

  • Nopi is my fave brunch spot!

  • You always find the best things on ASOS Rosie! I want a Custard of my own, he’s so adorable!!

    Ella xx

  • I love the nude shoes paired with the winter whites. I love wearing white in the colder weather too! OPI looks like an amazing place for breakfast! I always love having meeting friends for breakfast so will have to check it out soon πŸ™‚

  • White on white is so fresh in late autumn! You look gorgeous, as always — I’ve long been a fan of your blog and just now worked up the courage to tell you so (must be the power of a great white dress, eh?)

  • nice post

    you look amazing

  • Hi Rose,
    I totally love reading your blog! I stumbled across it a while back when in the midst of setting up my own blog, it seems we have a lot in common! I too love all things nautical and have the best view over the harbour from my apartment in Jersey … my stripe obsession drives my partner crazy too! My blog is very new and I am still trying to teach myself a LOT by reading up online etc so I can progress this to the stage where I am totally happy with it, and who knows, maybe one day I’ll be able to reach the level you have!
    In the mean time, I’d love it if you could find a minute to check out my blog and maybe even give me some feedback / tips?!
    Hope to hear from you and thanks for the entertainment and inspiration!

    Hi Rose,
    Love your blog and seem to have some things in common, I also love all things nautical and stripes in particular! (Living right next to the sea overlooking the harbour tends to have that effect!) thanks for the entertainment and inspiration!

    You look very elegant, Rosie. I’m a big fan of Winter whites. Also, I love the photos in this post – whoever is behind the camera (your fella..?) really caught the light beautifully.

  • Anna

    I don’t know whoever thought of not wearing white in winter…I had many white sweater in the past…before grey won me over! Your photos make me miss London…*sigh*
    Have one question for you as well! Which camera do you use? I found an older post reviewing a Sony one and also saying that up to that point you used Lumix GF5. I’m on the search for a new camera, so your input will be helpful! Thanks!

  • Victoria Johnson

    Your dog is the sweetest little thing! Lovely post! xx

  • Chachi

    Too white. Makes you look a bit blurred and formless. More so than black would. But hey you’re still smiling! Thanks Skunky!

  • The food at NOPI looks scrumptious – such a fan of Ottolenghi’s cooking! And Custard is just the cutest – I love the photo where you look like you’re dancing together in the leaves! xx
